About the Book: (Back Cover)
When Catharine Olsen leaves Holland for Wyoming as a mail-order bride, she brings some extra baggage with her: two sisters, her mother's set of Blue Willow china, and a tragic past. As she steps off the train, Peter Andersen is glad to see that she is everything her letters showed her to be. But he is a bit perturbed by her unexpected companions. How will he support them all? And what other secrets might Catharine be keeping from him?
Filled with sweet romance and vivid characters, Deeply Devoted highlights a clash of cultures as a highborn European and a simple wheat farmer learn to love one another and trust God with the past - and the future.
My Thoughts:I have read a few books about mail order brides and this book while entertaining, was fairly predictable. I like the strength portrayed in Catharine and her sisters, as well as Peter, they all handled their situation quite well, at least until Catharine's big secret was revealed! The secret of Catharine's past surprised me, it was a surprise to me, and helped keep the book from becoming overly predictable! The 'villain' in the book was quite entertaining as well!
If you like a sweet, romance you'll enjoy this book, a great cuddle up with a blanket on a cool night kind of read!
